Nintendo Downloads - April 19, 2012

The eShop receives a 3D Classics title, a demo, and a DSiWare game.

It’s yet another week without Virtual Console support for either the Wii or 3DS. However, the 3DS gets a 3D Classics title, an eShop demo, and a new DSiWare game.

To start it off, 3D Classics: Kid Icarus is finally available for download on the eShop. Prior to its eShop release, the 3D Classic was available as a bonus for preordering Kid Icarus: Uprising and for purchase at GameStop. 3D Classics: Kid Icarus is a remake of the original NES title, and while the game retains the original’s sprites, it also includes new and improved backgrounds, custom controls, and stereoscopic 3D. 3D Classics: Kid Icarus costs $5.99 on the eShop.

In addition to 3D Classics: Kid Icarus, a demo for Pyramids is now available on the eShop. Originally released last year by Enjoy Gaming, Pyramids is a puzzle platformer similar to Temco’s classic NES title Solomon’s Key. Like most other demos available on the eShop, Pyramids is limited to 30 uses. You can read Neal’s review of the full game here.   

Lastly, I Must Run!, a port of a popular mobile game, is now available on the 3DS eShop and Nintendo DSi Shop. Similar to games such as Canabalt and Bit.Trip Runner, I Must Run! is a running game where you must try your best to reach the center of the city in order to save your wife. The game costs $1.99 on the 3DS eShop and 200 points on the Nintendo DSi Shop.
